Daily Sisu is an illustrated, hands-on guide on how to use sisu – the unique Finnish concept of fortitude in the face of challenges – in your everyday life.

Do you need some motivation to help you boost your wellbeing? Daily Sisu provides simple and sensible ways to improve your health and wellbeing based on the Nordic lifestyle in a portable handbook.
Daily Sisu offers up a range of practical everyday solutions to use at work and play from incidental exercise to cold showers and winter cycling, the easy Nordic diet, and embracing Nordic simplicity (own less, utilise considered consumption), with tips and inspirations to guide readers on how to create a healthier, and ultimately happier, way of living.

“It was with delight that I chanced upon The Finnish Way, a self-help book promoting the joy and restorative power of sisu.”–Vogue, USA on The Finnish Way
